Deportation, followed by a Mexican firing squad, may be the fate of some or all of the body of potential revolutionists arrested here by United States government agents yesterday . . .  –San Diego Tribune, August 16, 1926

Captured Mexican revolutionaries assembled at Fort Rosecrans.

  1. I wonder if I can get more information about the arrest of General Enrique Estrada and General Aurelio Sepulveda in August 1926 and see if I can also get some record of the jail where they were.

    Me gustaría saber si puedo obtener más información de la detención del General Enrique Estrada y del General Aurelio Sepúlveda en agosto de 1926 y saber si también puedo conseguir algún registro de la cárcel donde estuvieron.

    Hugo, I’d start with a thorough reading of the newspaper coverage. The San Diego Union, Evening Tribune, and the Los Angeles Times all covered the story. All are available on microfilm and digitally at San Diego State University. Court records can also be consulted. Estrada and several others were tried in federal court in Los Angeles.
